King Statement on 20-Week Abortion Ban Bill

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Angus King (I-Maine) released the following statement today after opposing the advancement of legislation that would prohibit all abortions after 20 weeks with extremely limited exceptions:

This legislation puts up a wall between a woman and her doctor and interferes with important medical decisions,” Senator King said. “Rather than erect barriers to health care for women, Congress should work to make care more accessible and more affordable, and we should invest more in the type of services that will prevent the need for abortions in the first place.”
